Labrinth Reveals His Dream Collaboration And Future Plans
23-year-old Londoner Labrinth shot to fame following his input on Tinie Tempah’s smash-hit single ‘Pass Out’. Subsequently he was scouted by Simon Cowell and signed to the SyCo record label as a producer, before branching out as a solo artist in his own right. He recently sat down with Joseph ‘JP’ Patterson for GRAMMY.com to discuss his plans for the future…
Discussing the whirlwind success of ‘Pass Out’, Lab reminisced: "Winning a BRIT Award and an Ivor Novello for 'Pass Out' was pretty special. It still amazes me how much the song has blown up… What started out as something so small, in the depths of my studio, suddenly became one of the most recognizable tracks of that year.”
The artist revealed that his dream collaboration would be with Outkast’s André 3000 who he described as a ‘musical genius’: “I would love to sit in a studio with him for one day and see what crazy things [come out]. Imagine being inside his head and seeing how he fuses everything together.”
When asked about his plans for the future, the ‘Express Yourself’ singer said hopefully: "There is so much that I want to do. I just want to keep on putting out good music that people want to listen to.
"I want to build the Labrinth empire and inspire other young musicians to do the same. You never know what can happen."
Labrinth’s latest single ‘Treatment’ is set for release on August 27.
